Brunch and Beyond: Treat Mom to an Unforgettable Mother’s Day in North Lake Tahoe

Mark your calendars — Mother’s Day falls on May 14, which means there’s plenty of time to plan just the right getaway for mom in North Lake Tahoe or choose to give her the gift of a springtime excursion that she can enjoy anytime during this splendid season in the Sierra.

North Lake Tahoe offers something for all types of moms, from the brunchers to the breakneck daredevils:

For the Brunching Mom

North Lake Tahoe is renowned for its delicious local fare and stunning views that make even a basic brunch unforgettable. On Mother’s Day, though, local restaurants pull out all the stops to make mom’s day truly something to remember. A few timeless classics serving up fare from the traditional to the innovative are: West Shore Cafe, River Ranch Lodge, Crystal Bay Casino Steak and Lobster House, Manzanita at The Ritz-Carlton, and Jake’s on the Lake. For the mom who likes a little pampering with her brunch, Granlibakken and Lone Eagle Grille at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe serve up brunch with an adjacent spa option.

Whitewater Rafting on the Truckee River

Get mom’s pulse racing with a thrilling whitewater rafting trip on the Truckee River. The 2017 season is expected to reflect the abundant winter snowpack and should open in mid-May. Water levels and opening date predictions can be found here, and reservations are required.

Spring Skiing and Hot Tub at Squaw Valley’s High Camp

If mom just can’t get enough of that epic spring skiing action, there’s plenty for her to enjoy after this outrageous season. What’s more, if mom likes a little party with her powder, the breathtaking view from the High Camp Hot Tub opens for the season in early May, and Sundays feature a hot soak, cold drinks, and music from a live DJ. If mom prefers her soak solo, book her a treatment at the Trilogy Spa, offering indulgent spring specials like a Coco Butter & Chamomile Massage or Trilogy Organic Isun Facial.
